FRIDAY.... doing it again


I spent today at the hospital with my cute husband. He had a new port inserted for the impending chemo treatments and the transplant (Friday August 15th- his NEW birth day) this week. Thankfully the surgery went well and he kept telling everyone how much he LOVES Versed. Yes, I think they gave him a double dose. ha! I am so impressed continually with the staff at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The update on Tyler,  he met with his transplant oncologist yesterday. We were told that he has a 50/50% chance of the transplant working. They said they when they did the last pt scan that they did see a red area in a node his pelvis area. This most likely is cancer that is "stubborn." So they did decide to forgo the fourth Salvage chemo treatment to go into the transplant. 

This means that starting tomorrow he will get daily chemo. They increase the type and strength on day 3. Then on day 7- next Friday, they will transplant Tyler with the donor stem cells. His new birth day. They then wait and hope that the grafting process works. They hope that the donors healthy cells will fight and kill any residual cancer that is within his body. They have to carefully watch for grafting issues and Ty's body rejecting the new stem cells. They said that 50% of patients has problems with this.  As you can imagine, this is even harder and worse than the first transplant. Ty's cancer is very rare- T- cell peripheral lymphoma cancer (NOS)- not otherwise specified.  It is really a cancer that they have had to do a lot of experimenting. They plan to test him at 100 day post transplant and if they still see the cancer they will plan to do radiation.  

Thankfully, my entire family is united to support Tyler and each other. As Tyler will be in the hospital for the next few weeks, my mother in law and older children will be living at the house with us.  I will take it day by day... and keep going. I still have the greatest hope and faith that Tyler can and will be healed. 



Today I am sharing day 19 & 20 of INSPIRATION.
I wanted to show this beautiful project designed by Jennifer Haggerty. She did a Christmas Advent Frame
with Tinsel & Company.
 


She used my papers to cut into tag shapes. She used her punches as well to make them unique. 


This is the 12x12 tag paper.
She used them to display within the frame.
 


She used Studio Gold "GOLD" paper clips to attach the cards to the string. 






Such a beautiful project to display during the holiday season. Thank you Jennifer I love it!!!

Hi dear, sweet, gorgeous Teresa! Every fibre of my being is keeping positive thoughts for your lovely Ty, and for your entire family! I can't begin to know how you will all be feeling but the one thing I know is you all have HOPE and FAITH and that is just so beautiful! You inspire me to try and be a better person every single day and whenever I start to think ''oh I wish such-in-such wasn't happening (to me) right now'' I think of you and Ty and it makes me realise how thankful I am to just be ME (no matter what anyone else is making me feel). I hope this makes sense? I guess I'm trying to say THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR BEING YOU! Love you sweetheart.. Big hugs and all my extra strength! xxxx

Praying for your family during your struggles...........I know from experience that it is not easy; although it wasn't my husband, but my dad. You are fortunate to have so much family to help out. May God be with you.
